Cemetery Art Video

I haven't done much genealogy research lately. And that means I haven't checked for changes over at FamilySearch.org either. We usually give periodic updates at our genealogical society meetings. Wow! Was I in for a surprise when I visited the site recently.

I haven't navigated through it all yet but I can tell it is much more organized and user friendly.

Starting with the front page---click on the "What's New?" button and follow the updates.

And at the bottom of the home page---check out the free learning courses.

Once you get there you could spend many hours learning so much with some great resources....all at your finger tips.

Scanning down through the list I see there is a video on Cemetery Art by the Midwest Genealogy Center which is part of the Mid-Continent Library. I didn't get to watch all of it but I do plan to go back and finish it.

You can also get Slides from the video in PDF.

This reminds me of a pending project I haven't finished....short videos on the cemeteries in my county. Maybe I'll start over on one and use my new camera that also does video and see how it turns out.

Here is something interesting---I am working on a very detailed project for this cemetery. All of the work is shared with the city and sexton. This document would be interesting to look at and pass on to a fellow researcher that is documenting all of the civil war soldiers.

I can see where I will be spending some time in the near future. Stop by and check it out too. You just may discover something new.
